Fix what? I found one rattle and it was the window trim. Moved a screw over and it stopped.

The stereo part of the dash protrudes and shakes the high heavens

If you remove the panel that the radio is mounted in you should see 2 2x4 boards. If they are in there tightly you shouldn't have movement. It is a cheesy setup but it is on top of a steel frame and keeps the dash from moving. I found it one day when I was exchanging radios in my 2015 fr3 30ds.

Dash shakes

My Dash has only a cantilevered piece of plywood for support

Between the steel frame and the top of the dash I have 2 short pieces of 2x4 stacked up and it's tight. So the dash won't move easy fix.

We found a very simple fix for the shaking - put a plastic storage box (filled with whatever you want to store in it) underneath it. Just push it up under as far as it will go. Great storage area & no more shaking!
